Also, as far as higher pitched voices in power metal that are actually good, this is usually the first place I go.

Though they are usually referred to as either power OR prog, so it's in the air.

I want to enjoy Opeth's new album because it's reportedly way proggier, but I am still squeamish.

Most of their stuff is like, transitioning between shit that makes me want to fall asleep, and really bad growling. And my mom is always fagging about them being so insanely great.

So a part of me doesn't want to like said album because then I'd never hear the end of it from her.

i've never seen anyone complain about akerfeldt's growling before unless you're saying it's bad because it's growling

bad growling is like.. when mike portnoy tried to when he was still in dream theater (dark eternal night - awesome song mind you, a nightmare to remember.. so, so bad mike)

I dunno. I just can't really get into growling in general any more. I always used to like Opeth's Deliverance album, but at the same time I always used to like this.

i used to hate growling on the principle of what it is, but i just view it as a texture of sound now and focus on the guitars *shrug*

Dear Necro,

What is your definition of growling?

Sincerely,

Hollow

this might be confusing, because growling.. if you're not familiar with where metal went after thrash, you might think growling refers to how say, hetfield sang

growling is a style of vocals that is featured prominently in death metal. it's really guttural and hard to understand until you get used to it. the last thing iron linked to might be mistaken as growling to the uninitated, but it's more of a hardcore style shout - hence why i say metalcore (Which that was) is punk in disguise

Opeth- Heir Apparent

compare it to what iron linked and what i linked.. what i linked is growling, much much deeper

i used to hate it but i just pay attention to the instruments in metal that uses growling

Also, probably last one I'll bring up for now, but there's one major influence to power metal that's overlooked, which explains a lot of the bad, because lots of bands tried to follow an act which simply is too hard to follow.

Helloween - I Want Out (video is lol)
Helloween - Heavy Metal Hamsters (random goofy song, with a message about like record labels and stuff)
Helloween - The Departed (Sun Is Going Down) (and something a little more recent with a taste of their serious side, also shows how the guy's voice changed a lot, so he couldn't really even follow his own act (I still like this version of his voice though))
